I want to tell you about two very special investigators.
The first one is Shaira. Shaira is the spouse of a member named Manuel who has recently started coming back to church. Shaira is so awesome! From day one she said she wanted to learn about the Book of Mormon because she knew that by reading the Book of Mormon she would be able to know that our message is true. She also says that she wants an eternal family. Two Sundays ago in sacrament meeting they talked about families. She immediately thought how much her neighbor would love to know what she learned! She went home and told her neighbor everything about it and invited her to listen to our message. She also plans to be baptized this month. This past visit we were about to leave so we knelt down with them to say a prayer. Shaira said, "Heavenly Father help me know if this is the truth, I believe it is, but please confirm it in my heart." Shaira has such faith!!! When she said that prayer I immediately thought of James 1:5-6 "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and ubraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed."
We are also working a lot with Jose. One of our first days here in Almirante we were walking around trying to make a map of our area when Hermana Lang felt impressed to talk with Jose. We stopped to talk with him but as we walked up his steps we accidentally scared his 3 year old grandson who screamed at the top of his lungs, oops. We asked him if we could come back and he said yes. With the many many people we talked with those first few weeks we almost forgot to go back, but a couple weeks later we were looking through our list of contacts and thought we should visit him. We went by and we did not regret it. Jose has been waiting his whole life for the gospel. He says that he has visited lots of churches but he has never felt what he has felt when he listens to the message we share. He reads the Book of Mormon every day and all the material we give him. He is trying to soak up as much as he can. He is a man who truly is hungering and thirsting after righteousness. I am so blessed to teach these incredible sons and daughters of God.
The largest COCK ROACH I have ever seen!!!!
